You can talk about ability all day long, but what really matters in sport is the enjoyment factor. Unfortunately for women, the majority of sports that we watch to distract ourselves from boredom nowadays were created and played by men. This means that females are essentially playing catch up in order to get an equal standing in sports they love playing. 

Men love tradition. Growing up with male domination in all of these sports and enjoying them means that witnessing an increased female participation makes them fearful of change or perhaps losing it forever.

But what these closed-minded people fail to see is that any women's sport can be just as entertaining as the men's game they already know.

The anticipation becomes just as fraught with excitement and the game itself possesses a rollercoaster of emotions like any other.

The specifics of what the performers can or cannot do matters not. What a man could have done in a similar situation matters not. The important elements of the sport remain the same: people displaying their ability and passion in the pursuit of victory.

And when they have a following, some fans to really get behind them, these women will inevitably succeed to entertain those willing to watch.

For the FIFA Women's World Cup, it's becoming easier to see that ordinary people are taking an interest and as soon as they see a match they become fans. The English Lionesses have so far been an inspiration and appear set for greatness. Let's hope they put on a show.

Have you enjoyed the Women's World Cup so far?
